Oakton Coin is a completely secure coin shop close to Chicago.
We are not a pawn shop. We do not have a pawning license.
When you’re getting ready to sell your bullion and numismatic holdings, it is very important to consider the security of the coin dealer’s physical location. Oakton Coin is on the border of Chicago, in the very safe suburb of Skokie. We have a state-of-the-art, 360-degree video surveillance system in place. We also have a second door buzzer system. You will be the only person(s) in the room with us while we’re figuring out the worth of your valuables.
Parking is right in front of the shop (or in back), and we can escort you to and from your car if necessary. We also have many more security measures in place that we would prefer not to publish on the internet, but you can have full confidence that everything is very secure.
A lot of Chicago area shops are fairly lax about who they let in while they’re negotiating deals. It’s always best to be careful, especially when transactions involve cash.
